Pat discussed the residents of a Tennessee town who are bracing for an upcoming "White Lives Matter" rally they fear could turn into a Charlottesville nightmare. 

The rally is scheduled for October 28th in Shelbyville which is home to about 20,000 people.

"Out of concern for the possibility of violence and property damage ... will close streets and separate opposing protesters during an upcoming 'White Lives Matter' rally," reported the local paper.

Several white nationalist groups are expected to attend the rallies and the resettlement of refugees in the area is said to be at the center of the group's grievances.

The city of Shelbyville says this is a direct response to violent outbursts witnessed in Charlottesville, Virginia, at a "Unite the Right" rally that left one woman and two state troopers dead.
